TWO FROM GALILEE -A BROADWAY STYLE CHRISTMAS MUSICAL

Sunday, December 21st 2014 - 6:00 pm

Two From Galilee, a full-scale Christmas musical based on the book by Marjorie Holmes. This is the story of two real people whose lives were touched by God: two people chosen by God to provide an earthly home for His Son. Here are Mary and Joseph – a teenage girl and a young carpenter – in love, faced with family conflict, a hostile world, and an awesome responsibility. It is a story for young and old alike; for everyone who finds the Christmas tale a source of timeless beauty and wonder. Performances are scheduled for Wednesday, December 17, 7:00 PM; Friday, December 19, 7:00 PM, and Sunday, December 21, 6:00 PM.  Two From Galilee is created and written by Robert Sterling & Karla Worley, arranged and orchestrated by Robert Sterling.
